Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana on Friday invited a group of students from Jammu and Kashmir to join the police’s YUVA initiative and assured them of all the assistance. He also offered two of them whose relatives got martyr jobs after completing the YUVA program.
The police chief, along with senior officers, interacted with the students at the Delhi Police Headquarters. According to an official statement, a total of 172 children aged 11 to 21 from Reasi and Bandipora districts of Jammu and Kashmir are on a Bharat Darshan tour organized by J&K police under goodwill measures of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
“I would like to offer the two students from Jammu and Kashmir whose relatives were martyred to participate in the Delhi Police’s YUVA program and we will take care of them and provide them with jobs,” Asthana said. “We can get permission from the government and reserve a few seats in YUVA for those children of Jammu and Kashmir whose parents have been tortured or who need any kind of support,” he said.
YUVA, a flagship community policing initiative of Delhi Police, was launched in 2017 in partnership with the National Skill Development Corporation. The Delhi Police also organized a dog show and band performance for the students.
On the occasion, Asthana appreciated this gesture by the J&K Police and thanked the children for accepting the hospitality of the Delhi Police as they explored the country. “These are your formative years and everything you see and learn during this period will make you better people,” he said. In the statement, Asthana underlined the importance of sports and music, saying: Such hobbies not only make you stress-free, but they motivate you by bringing out your natural self.
“Wherever you stay or travel around the world, the needs, desires and enthusiasm of individuals remain the same; and when we join forces to pursue our dreams, the results are always good for the country, he said in the statement. He also invited the children to participate in the Delhi Police YUVA program and assured that the Delhi Police would give every possible assistance to JK Police in implementing such community initiatives to help the local youth receive a professional education and get good jobs, the statement said.
The police commissioner wished them good luck with their stay and hoped to meet them in the future as successful citizens of the country. Ashfaq Alam, Deputy Superintendent of J&K Police who accompanied the students, said: The program organized by the Delhi Police was very good. The students also get the chance to speak here.
They are glad they got the chance to see the national capital. It is a brilliant initiative by the J&K Police. The students stay in Delhi for three days and visit places like National Police Memorial Chanakyapuri, Parliament House, India Gate. They will then proceed to Chennai and Bangalore for the remainder of the tour, the statement said.
